Urchin W/ Anemone

Srry for all the weird questions, but a little 2 inch purple urchin came with my live rock and comes out at night, and i was wondering if thatll be a threat to my anemone or not. Ive tried removing it, but its spikes are pretty darn harder than i expected them to be.

Thanks

Provided the tank is large enough and you're not keeping a carnivorous anemone, there shouldn't be any harm in them together.

What kind of anemone? How big of a tank?

Purple urchins are algae eaters, so it won't bother to feed on the anemone. There are a number of tube anemones that eat anything they can catch, but if this is something like a bubble anemone, condylactus anemone, sebare, riteri, etc... it should be just fine.
